Are you considering spending a holiday in Ibiza with your children, but you wonder whether it is a family destination or not? Don’t worry, in this post we are going to show you that Ibiza is much more than parties and clubs and that it is a great destination to spend your ideal family holiday.
Despite being known as a party destination, itis worth mentioning that Ibiza is a perfect destination to spend a family vacation. There are countless children-oriented activities that your family will love for sure. Such as visiting beaches and calas, sunsets, cultural and rural tourism.
Therefore, if you are planning to come to Ibiza to spend your family vacation, then this article is for you. Below are 4 activities that we suggest you during your vacation in Ibiza.
Discover with your children the hippest cala on Ibiza
Ibiza’s beaches are usually packed during the summer therefore, we suggest you to escape the crowds and visit the north of the island and dive in the stunning cala of Benirras.
San Juan (north of the island) homes this magical and small cala, called Benirras, with a unique hippy atmosphere where every Sunday, hippies gather around a circle to play drum at one rhythm before the sunset. At certain times of the year, the sun hides right behind a small islet in the middle of the beach which adds a special touch to this iconic place.
In addition, there are several restaurants in the area where you’ll be able to try traditional food and drinks.
Our team at the front desk in any of our azuLinehotels will inform you what’s the best way to reach Benirras.
Family activities on the beach
In the eastern part of Ibiza, near the town of Santa Eulalia, you will find Cala Martina, a really nice and pleasant beach to spend a great family day with your children. Due to the shallow waters and great beach conditions, this beach is an ideal and safe option for the little ones. We recommend to stop at Tina’s Beach food to delight yourself with delicious hamburgers, salads and seafood.
In addition, you cannot miss the Hippy Market Punta Arabí, which is held every Wednesday at the azuLine hotel in Cala Martina.
The beach can be easily reached from the hotel azuLine Club Cala Martina, located at approximately 300 meters away. You’ll also find several shops, supermarkets and convenience stores near the area.
And if that wasn’t enough, Cala Martina is an ideal place for water activities such as diving and snorkeling as there are three islets where you can observe the underwater wealth of Ibiza. We recommend you to book your activities with Dive Club Punta Dive and Wet4Fun as they know the best areas to go diving.
Definitely, Cala Martina is a great place to watch children play in the sand and in the water, have a drink and spend the whole day relaxing on the beach.
Stroll through the port of Ibiza with your children
Another great plan is to take a tour of the area of the port of Ibiza. The best part of the plan, apart from seeing the magnificent yachts in the port, is to have a panoramic view of the old Town of Ibiza called Dalt Vila, with its fishermen’s buildings just below the wall, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
If you want to go for lunch or dinner, we recommend the restaurant located precisely in the area of Marina Botafoch, called A Son de Mar. Ivan, the chef, specialty is the delicious traditional Spanish dishes with Ibicecan touches such as “fideuá” and “senyoret rice”.
Relax on the outdoor terrace enjoying the spectacular views of Dalt Vila and delight your senses with a glass of Ibizan herbs.
Medieval adventure with children in Ibiza
Later, and this is the icing on the cake, take one of the boats in the port that stop by the Sa Calma dam. There’s a boat the runs between Talamanca and Ibiza Port, stopping at Sa Calma, located near A Son de Mar. Take the boat so your children can enjoy the sailing looking at the old town of Ibiza and its castle.
Upon arrival, it is worth strolling through the alleys of the port and enjoying the picturesque atmosphere and observing the number of small shops and stands selling handicrafts and clothing.
It is mandatory to visit Dalt Vila. Enter through the portal of Ses Taules, walk through the Medieval wall, passing through its defensive bastions, stone streets and old gates until you reach the Cathedral.
This excursion can become a magical adventure for the little ones. Aesthetically the old town is dreamy, and once reached the top, the viewpoints allow you to contemplate Formentera, the Salinas, the port and if you get the view, an essential excursion if you visit the island.
Traveling to Ibiza with children is fascinating, it is a destination worth enjoying. For safety, the quality of the place, and the amount of activities that can be done together to create unique moments.
